The traditional hedge maze is what The Enchanted Maze Garden is famous for, but there's a number of alternatives to keep the kids lost in their own amusement for hours here. A turf maze, children's maze, blue gum gallery maze, and, most intriguingly, a 3D indoor maze with UV fluorescent painted murals all promise to confound and delight. Any extra energy can then be expended on the tube slides (just don't show them the candy store afterwards).
In addition to the mazes there are also a number of stunning gardens for the grown-ups to appreciate: connifers, succulents, and English gardens, as well as The Grey Tile Garden with ceramics by Jo Singer.
The Enchanted Maze Garden hosts a number of seasonal events, so be sure to check the website when you're planning your visit.
